Our Top Tips For Holidaying With Toddlers

Escape the crowds this summer…

Yes, sometimes the thought of going on holiday with your baby or toddler can be overwhelming; just the thought of having to board a plane with two small children sends us into a frenzied panic so take the stress out of holidaying and come to Cornwall this July.

Cornwall becomes a very popular place once the schools break up for summer so now is a great time to visit as the beaches are a little less crowded (leave the baby reins at home), the roads are quieter (no endless queues) and the weather is great (we have our fingers and toes crossed).

Here are our top tips for holidaying in Cornwall with your little ones before the crowds descend at the end of July.

1.     Beach Days – yes, they can be done in the UK! There is no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing. The kids won’t care what the weather is doing, they will just be happy to play in the sand and if it is a little cloudy, at least you won’t have to keep applying sun cream. Our top tip is to purchase a pop-up beach tent. Beach tents make the perfect come rain or shine.

Prices start from as little as £9.99

Just a ten-minute stroll from the campsite and you arrive at the vast sandy Holywell Bay beach that has shallow waters and soft sand.

It also has huge sand dunes that are perfect for sledging down.

Things to do at the beach with young children…

o   Go on a scavenger hunt collecting shells, sea glass, pebbles and seaweed

3.     Newquay – just a four-mile drive and you are in Newquay, a small town with a lot going on. Our top tip is to head to the Boating Lake.
